The Mill Church
This client style approach is one of my favorites, blending masculinity, bold lines and natural muted tones. When the team filled out our Client Brief/Inventory Sheet. some key words were MANLY, COOL. and we like Beards and Brewery style logos (heck yeah!!).
The Mill Church Logo Design
After the initial meeting our vision was created to build a masculine, modern logo. As you will see through the following images, sometimes the process enables the client to really discover how THEY want to visually represent their organization - In this case, the a growing church with plans to quickly launch a second location in Central Wisconsin, led by a pastor who has an exceptional beard.
Starting Point - Inspiration Board
Proof one included four distinct options with two handwritten versions. This page is followed by a page showing some variations of each idea. They were visualizing how this logo would look on outdoor signage for their church, so this is a part of the proof samples as well.
While there was a lot of excitement over the first round of proofs -- when you're working with an elder board and a congregation of thoughts, you have to look at all the options.
One of the Mill Church members sketched this building from across the way from where the new church would be built. How cool is that?! So this became phase #2. We married a few ideas together.
Sketches began using the provided image
Branded by J.Otto
Meeting Jessie Otto was such a fun experience. This woman has a goal and the heart to bring it thru to completion. Without a doubt!
"Branded by J.Otto has created clothing with a purpose. We believe that God's words are more profound than our own, so our vision is to create an experience that will provide the opportunity to enter into someone's story and leave a mark on their life; A Mark that Matters.
Each clothing garment will contain three key elements; the theme, the word and the verse. The garment will also come with a link to a short video speaking on the specific verse that you have chosen. So when someone you know is experiencing one of life's greatest triumphs or biggest trials, inspire them with scripture and provide them with a gift from Branded by J.Otto that will leave a lasting impact on their life."

My starting point after research is always my sketchpad. I prefer grid paper or dotted paper.

Outpost Recovery Retreat
Working with this team of three ladies, you discover quickly, they have thoughtful goals and great ambition to serve. This company was created to build a FUN environment for a weekend retreat for those in recovery.
The bear is representative of strength, power, forward - movement, ambition, self-awareness, and of the location of the initial Addiction/Recover ministry that brought these three leaders together; White Bear Lake, MN.
Looking forward to seeing these ladies develop this program into a productive and fun event for those in the Midwest looking for a solid faith-based recovery retreat.
